These yellow wildflowers by the beach were blossoming as though there were no tomorrow. The magic hour glow accompanied by the slightly nippy, late afternoon air illuminated them like crazy. Funny how exquisite the old, rusty wrought iron wire fence looked in orange glow, against the typical, maybe too bland, Southern California’s cloudless sky despite the fact that it was slowly getting steeped in the orange/magenta glow. Before further sauntering down the trail to the beach, I took a few moments to appreciate the ever growing glow over the slowly fading bluff edge.
